Accademia Gallery

Visitors to Florence’s Accademia Gallery invariably come for one reason – to see Michelangelo’s magnificent statue of David. David has been on display here since 1873 along with the artist’s Slaves and St. Matthew.

On a trip to the Accademia – originally founded in the 1780s – you’ll also be able to take in an important collection of Renaissance paintings by the likes of Botticelli and Ghirlandaio, the remarkable original plaster cast of Giambologna’s Rape of the Sabine Women, and the charming Museum of Musical Instruments.

The ticket pick up was easy to find, right across from the gallery. Unable to pick up tickets until 15 minutes before. Easy and fast!

Buying the tickets in advance sure beats waiting in line!!! The exhibits are beautiful but the main attraction is the statue David.

The Accademia tickets got us straight in to the building despite the huge line going down the street and around the building. We were taken right in to security (airport like) and then right into the rooms. However, the place was PACKED! CRAMMED! and this crowd was in early October! what in the world was it like last summer?! The David is of course the must-see for all of Florence--nothing else approaches its importance or its beauty. It looks nothing like the photographs in the art books and MUST BE SEEN TO BE APPRECIATED! It is in a place of focus and honor under a rotunda at the end of a hall, so you see it all the way as you approach. We also looked at the other Michelangelo's in the same hall, which were interesting but nothing compared to David.

The skip-the-line feature was worth the cost, because lines were long, even in early October. Tip: download a podcast audio tour before you go and don't forget your headphones. I used Rick Steve's guide to the Accademia.
